    I am convinced!

    Advertisement



    I am convinced that verizon has locked quite a bit of things in the os to keep people from customizing the new Pearl 2. I cannot even add new themes to my device! Is it possible to download different software into the device to "unlock" it? Perhaps the Telus sw?

    Just in case you were wondering I am receiving errors everytime I try to load themes or programs to the device using the new device manager. When I ota certain apps they will install but not work. When I ota themes they won't open or work.

    After the ota download of themes/apps, have u tried the old battery pull?

    Also, I am almost 100% sure you need your device OS installed on your pc for loading apps via dm to actually work.

    Cherri means you need to have your device OS downloaded onto your PC in order for loading apps via DM to work. You can find out what OS you have by going to Options>About on your BB and checking for the OS you need and downloading it.

    I don't know about the app problem

    But I would assume themes will need updating for the new software, and they wont work on the new OS.

    Just an assumption!

    After you download themes and says its installed, you still need to perform a battery pull. Or if you try desktop manager it will do it auto.

    Yes, I've had instances where I've even had to do a battery pull a couple of times before themes would show up.

    Re: I am convinced!

    Even when I ota themes I get errors.. Now with downloading my os I have 4.3 and I have dm 4.3 is that what you mean? If not how do I install the os on my computer? Any walkthrough for this?

    The battery pull won't do anything for me since I cannot get the themes to install! There is a guy on howard forums who was able to get the tmo theme on his 8130 so I guess there is hope.

    Wow - I sure hope this isn't true, otherwise I will be VERY upset. I'm getting my first BB from Verizon on Thursday, the 8130. Themes are one of the things I'm looking forward to most.

    Look for your carrier and download the software via PC from this link:
    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com..._os_guide.html

    Then all you have to do once the file is downloaded is run and install it and it will be installed
    on your PC.

    I dont understand how this is any different than the software i installed from the disc that came with the phone. Its desktop manager 4.3 for my phone, the 8130 with sw 4.3 on it.

    ^^Right, DM and OS are two different things. Your question was how to install OS onto PC. The link I gave you is for the OS and how to get it onto your PC. Hope that helps.

    All of our themes are for 4.2, is anyone sure they'll work for 4.3?
